Paper Abstract

The status of the development of full-color polymer light emitting diodes will be presented. The focus of current materials research is on state-of-the-art red, green, and blue light-emitting polymers (LEP) with high efficiency, optimum color points, low driving voltages and long lifetimes in devices. A general overview of the progress of red, green and blue LEP lifetimes and efficiencies will be given and compared to requirements for both full-color passive and active matrix-displays for mobile display applications. Further, the status of ink-jet printing of LEPs for the industrialization of full-color displays will be discussed, and a comparison of the performance of spin coated and inkjet printed devices will be presented. In addition, two material-related topics studied recently will be discussed; namely, the lifetime of blue light-emitting devices correlated to processing, anodes, cathodes and the blue polymers themselves, and second, the consequences of pulsed-driving schemes on efficiency and lifetime.
